The ECR Group congratulates the Spanish VOX Party for the overwhelming electoral results in the regional Catalan elections.
The ECR Group in the European Parliament has congratulated VOX after the Spanish party was elected to the Catalan parliament for the first time, gaining 11 seats in the regional elections yesterday (14th February).
In a letter sent to Mr Santiago Abascal Conde, President of the VOX, Ryszard Legutko (PiS, Poland) and Raffaele Fitto (Fratelli d’Italia, Italy), Co-Chairmen of the European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the European Parliament, welcomed the developments, stating jointly:
“We contemplate with joy how VOX has exceeded all expectations in an uneasy atmosphere, enlisting the support of thousands of Spaniards in defense of national unity, freedom, and the sovereignty of the Spanish nation.
“This electoral success is further compounded by the fact that more VOX representatives were elected compared to any other centrist or centre-right party, meaning that VOX may lead the opposition in the Chamber.
“We are convinced that these results will be the first step to return the Catalan region to the path of constitutionality.”
